    The thrilling final laps that led to James Hinchcliffe’s last-turn pass over Takuma Sato for the victory in Brazil were a fitting depiction of a competitive IndyCar season which heads to its biggest race of the year in Indianapolis.

    The success continued for Hunter-Reay’s teammate in the 2013 season opener. At the street course race in St. Petersburg, Fla., Canadian James Hinchcliffe drove Danica Patrick’s former car to his first career IndyCar victory.

    Sato, coming off his first career victory two weeks ago in Long Beach, drove in too hard for the hairpin at the end of the long back straight and gave just enough space for Hinchcliffe to get past.

    You might say that with the series being so competitive even a Top 5 finish is a very good result (I do think that). However points leader Helio Castroneves has actually finished 1st-5th one less time than Scott Dixon, as well as having only one victory to Dixon’s hat-trick. That 29-point gap is almost purely down to his 6-1 record in finishing 6th-10th, only finishing lower than 10th once. Then again, if Dixon finished outside the Top 10 in over a third of his races and Helio only once, doesn’t Helio deserve to be the leading driver? What’s more Helio has made one more appearance on the podium than Dixon. In every other category, who has the advantage changes. What makes me lean to a more critical view of the points system is that Dixon leads Helio in two of the first three categories and Helio only wins out when including all of them. But I’ll hold off on that for reasons I will explain shortly.
